“After achieving top ranks in the classification of 200 best scientific researchers, Raja Al-Sharqawi and Farida Al-Fasi, two professors at the Faculty of Sciences of Mohammed V University in Rabat, who specialize in nuclear physics, have won a well-deserved crown. Worldwide”.
Two Moroccan scientific researchers were included in the list of 200 researchers worldwide, while they managed to top the list of “the most influential scientists of the African continent and the Arab region”, according to data released by the Global Index. “Alper Dogger Scientific Index”; Raja Al-Sharqawi Al-Morzali is ranked 152nd in the world, first in Africa and the Arab world, not far behind her colleague Farida El-Fasi, ranked 160th in the world and second in Africa and the Arab world.
This arrangement is based on three sub-classification criteria and basic indicators, which are the “H” index, the “i10” index, the number of citations and general referrals in scientific and research refereed articles, which are indicators of scientific quality. Impact and citation rate of their research.
The “H” index measures an author’s production level and the citation impact of his publications based on a set of research papers cited by scholars and researchers, while the “i10” index measures the number of publications. At least 10 citations through the “Google Scholar” platform. . Moreover, the ratio between “the value of the last five years and the total value of the above-mentioned indicators” is calculated.
In a statement to the Hespress Electronic newspaper, Dr. Raja al-Sharqawi explained. Scientists individually,” and it also rates research institutions. The academy is based on the scientific merits of its affiliated scholars.
